Since the beginning of the Russian military operation in Ukraine, dozens of US citizens have taken part in the military conflict on the side of Kiev. Some of them were killed, many returned home, others were captured. As of July 29, at least 6 US citizens are in captivity in the DPR and LPR. All of them are accused of committing crimes under Article 430 of the Criminal Code of the DPR and Article 359 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

These persons do not have the status of prisoners of war and can be sentenced to capital punishment, i.e. the death penalty. Perhaps the most publicly known are Alexander Drueke and Andy Huynh, who were captured with weapons in their hands in the Kharkiv region on June 9.

Today, Alexander and Andy are awaiting trial in a prison in the DPR. Both Americans have repeatedly appealed to the US authorities by phone asking to provide all possible assistance to exchange them or alleviate their plight. All their requests have yielded no results.

Recently, Alexander Drueke made another call to the US State Department with a request to clarify the current status of his case. The representative of the State Department replied that the issue is being dealt with, but all information about the progress is classified.

As far as we know, the DPR investigative bodies have not charged the two men with any other war crimes while they were on the territory of the conflict, apart from mercenarism. Thus, the DPR authorities allegedly send a signal that the fate of the US citizens is not predetermined and negotiations are possible.

Earlier, SouthFront published a public appeals by Alexander on July 18 and Andy on July 20. On July 22, an article was published explaining the case of these US citizens, their legal status and possible exchange options. The article by SouthFront suggested that Alexander and Andy could be exchanged for Viktor Bout, who is serving a 25-year sentence in an American prison on charges of trafficking arms in third countries.

Almost a week later on July 28, CNN published an article based on the Biden administration’s statement that the White House had previously sent a substantial proposal to Moscow to exchange Viktor Bout for Paul Whelan, who is serving a 16-year sentence in Russia for espionage, and basketball player Brittney Griner, who was arrested in Russia on suspicion of drug smuggling. Blinken also announced plans to hold the first telephone conversation with Lavrov since the beginning of the military operation in Ukraine, in which he would again raise the question of the release of Paul Whelan and Brittney Griner through the exchange procedure.

Blinken did not say anything about the US actions for Alexander Drueke and Andy Huynh.

This approach of the White House is quite understandable. Washington denies that the recruitment and traffic of foreign mercenaries is carried out through organizations funded by the State. US officials have repeatedly claimed that the Americans who decided to go to war in Ukraine did it only in accordance with their beliefs, and the US authorities did not take any part in their financing.

However, the information that was revealed by Alexander and Andy’s testimonies suggests that their trip was organized and probably funded by American NGOs, which are supported in particular by USAID, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and other structures. LINK, LINK

In turn, Paul Whelan, for whom the White House expects to exchange Mr Bout, was convicted in Russia for espionage, and the drug courier Brittney Griner was made a media person in the United States, new symbol of the struggle for freedom. In fact, a black American woman of non-traditional sexual orientation is an ideal object for heroization in the modern US political agenda.

Washington To Play 'Bout Card'

The White House’s proposal is aimed at exchanging two conditionally equivalent figures of the “arms dealer” Bout for the “secret-service agent” Whelan, and in addition to gain a useful media appendage represented by Brittney Griner. In the chess game of Washington and Moscow, this proposal is an attempt to exchange a chevalier (Bout) for a knight (Whelan) and a black pawn (Griner), which has every chance of becoming a media queen.

Of course, pawns Alexander and Andy are out of the Washington’s game. Thus, Moscow’s signal was heard, but the answer has nothing to do with concern for the fate of US citizens, who, as they believed, went to a foreign country to defend the interests of their motherland, and pursues only the goals of political hype, vital to the Biden administration, which is rapidly losing support among US citizens.

Julian Assange has got no Russian gene in his blood but widely recognised as hero of the righteous mass, Moscow would be able to significantly boost Putin’s political image if he can secure the freedom of Julian through exchanges.. Adding the possibility that the man has got more important info hidden under his sleeves to discredit and undermine the Anglo-Saxon political structures.

Julian Assange is far too honest. The moment he arrives in Moscow he would talk about war, rape and torture and more war crimes committed by Russia.

After that he will share a cell with Nawalny.

The criminal leadership of Russia is well aware of that and thus will not raise a finger for him.

But don’t worry, in the hereafter it all will get sorted out by the judgement angels. Not a task to envy the judgement angels for. They do know everything we did, no matter how much we try to ignore and forget it.

“he arrives in Moscow”… “Russia is well aware of that and thus will not raise a finger for him”… How did you think Julian able to reach Moscow? you are very confused writing a sentence contradicting .another sentence. Sorry to burst your bubble sir, I suggest you take a break to recharge your brain dysfunction.

Very cheap BS on your part. Why didn’t you mention Mr. Snowden? He is very well and alive, **because** he made the right decision to go to Russia. Unlike US and the rest of their vassals, Russia **is** a free country, while US only **pretends** to be one. The criminal government in the US has been loosing to China and Russia for quite some time now. January 6’th was just evidence of how weak they are. And look what they did with their own people. They revealed their own Guantanamo inside US. No wonder their whole society is in such disarray.

Next time you try to cope with reality, just leave the names of honest and brave people out. You are not worthy to talk about them in any way. Your existence alone is an embarrassment to humanity already. Your yourself are even worse. How sad ist that.

By the way, Snowden wanted to fly to Cuba from China, but EU closed its airspace, that’s how Snowden arrived in Moscow. Looks like he is quite well now, if his wife gave a birth. Meanwhile in England its government put english citizen Graham Phillips in sanctions list. They repeated stupidity of Kiev regime. Adequate governments don’t sanction their own citizens, they are starting investigation and trial with advocates to prove a crime, if it was committed. German government has frozen bank accounts of another journalist — Alina Lipp. Her father’s accounts were frozen too. Liberal democracy at its best.

Inquisition

Says who you ? Snowden ,Depardieu, is also in russia and they are not in prison ,if you permanent breking the russian law like Nawalny ,what else can you expect ,holiday on spanish coast ?

Антон

“if you permanent breking the russian law like Nawalny ,what else can you expect ,holiday on spanish coast ?”

He had 14 (fourteen) vacations per year, including rest at spanish coast, Thailand, Greece and other warm places after meetings with officers of the US embassy (in Moscow) in such cold places as Arhangelsk, this is city in the north of Russia, 1000 km away from the capital. They though that nobody will recognize them here, but one man filmed them on a phone. That’s how he made money for 14 vacations and dolce vita (good life in italian).

It’s now getting clear that the US UK EU NATO has no plan to end the Ukraine crisis because once the Russians achieved victory over the Ukraine, the Ukrainian government officials together with the military would switch allegiance to Russia, who can be used as state witnesses in courts where they could testify and disclose everything they know about the atrocious conspiracy and war crimes committed as partners that will certainly lead into conviction of these western bloc nations of crimes against humanity

Russia should now realise the urgency to cut the head of proxy snake in Kiev since the Western bloc would pay any price to prolong the war because It’s now getting clear that the US UK EU NATO has no plan to end the Ukraine crisis because once the Russians achieved victory over the Ukraine, the Ukrainian government officials together with the military would switch allegiance to Russia, who can be used as state witnesses in courts where they could testify and disclose everything they know about the atrocious conspiracy and war crimes committed as partners that will certainly lead into conviction of these western bloc nations of crimes against humanity.

“According to CNN, Russia, during negotiations over the exchange of Bout for Whelan and Greiner, suggested that the United States add to the exchange Vadim Sokolov”. So, at the end it will be Bout for Greiner and Whelan for Sokolov. I think this would be an acceptable deal – 2 for 2.

It would be nice had this conflict never escalated. Otherwise, it seems this war was decided upon years ago from behind closed doors.

https://t.me/fortresskyiv/1005 “It is noteworthy that Zhirinovsky has always been very shy about two well-known facts about himself. And he was always furious when someone reminded him that his father was Jewish, and he himself was an inveterate homosexual.”

https://t.me/SurvivingWeimerikachat/83261 [Elaborating on Vladimir Zhirinovsky’s jewish roots and how the Bulgarian internet in 2010 “predicted” the Russia-Ukraine conflict of 2014-2022, calling it “Operation Gog & Magog” as a plan to defeat the USA and handover world hegemony to a Sino-Russian alliance.]

https://t.me/SurvivingWeimerikachat/83255 “Eerie footage showing recently deceased Russian politician, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, nearly ‘predicting’ the exact time and day of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.”

The day of the invasion fell on a jewish holiday: https://www.chabad.org/calendar/view/day.asp?tdate=2/22

https://t.me/EternalMuscovite/6072 These crazy rabbis try to link any global upheaval to their insane prophesies. Christians and Muslims do this too. Every war, they claim it’s a “sign” of the End Times and return of their Messiah.

I remember overhearing a suggestion in a podcast I was watching that the four horsemen of the apocalypse are a symbolic representation of Aryans, such as the Kimmérioi (Cimmerians) who slayed Sargon II of the Neo-Akkadian empire in battle (705 BCE). Another were Scythians who slayed Cyrus the Great of the Achaemenid (First Persian) empire in battle.

Chabad rabbis claim the war in Ukraine is a prelude to the prophetic battle between Gog & Magog mentioned in the book of Revelation.

Rumors in the Ukro sub press that Kiev will capitulate in few weeks from now. Not because of they are losing until now (which they are in fact), but because they understood that they will not survive the Winter in a state of war with Russia.

Washington won’t allow Kiev capitulate so fast. They are bombing their own citizens (like in Herson) with heavy weapons now, they are killing their own soldiers and bombing their POWs (in Elenovka), so it doesn’t look like they care about who survive winter and who is not.

This is not just about prisoner swaps – the frank exchange between Blinken and Lavrov where prisoner swaps were discussed – is signalling a new old style equality in discussions reminiscent of the Soviet Era. Russia is demanding equality quite bluntly in these discussions and is also signalling to the US – do what you want, but our Goals will be achieved in Ukraine. The US is left in no doubt that Russia is not taking any off ramp, that the US and west have no say and influence in the matter. Sanctions, stealing of Russian assets or providing weapons to Ukraine mean nothing. Russia is going to execute no matter what! This really shows where we have come to – a new multipolar world where the US has lost influence and ability to manage conflict (be the policeman of the Rothchild mantra – only my sons can decide who makes war) and a huge strategic miscalculation by the US, where Russia is fighting all in for it’s very existence, and the US is losing its global dominance over what is a simple attempt to hurt Russia. In simple terms the US has cut off its nose to spite its face. The interesting thing is what went wrong in US thinking and policy that led to the US making this mammoth strategic blunder today. A new thinking that is at odds with the more stable and traditional thinking of the US – to look after itself. Has Ukraine managed to manipulate the US into downfall, is that a play that has come from pro Russia elements in Ukraine, or is it the US thought it could execute total domination of a nuclear power, a calculus which seems at best delusional and at worst imbecilic.
